‘Okay’ is really the only word that I can use to describe this show. It’s not extremely interesting and, although this is just my personal opinion, I think it looks like a slightly cheaper version of the Infinite Stratos: IS series.
The artwork is alright. The characters look pretty cool and the mechs so far look pretty good too. Yes, there are quite a few things that I would’ve done differently, like making that thing with the swords a little less obvious, but oh well…
Story-wise it leaves a bit to be desired. It’s kind of predictable and it doesn’t really make you want to watch more of it.
If you loved the Infinite Stratos: IS series then you might want to check this one out. I for one will wait for the second episode to see whether or not I will continue following this show.
Plot Summary: Lux is a former prince of an empire named Arcadia that was overthrown via a rebellion five years earlier. Lux accidentally trespasses in a female dormitory’s bathing area, sees the kingdom’s new princess Lisesharte naked, and incurs her wrath. Lisesharte then challenges Lux to a Drag-Ride duel. Drag-Rides are ancient armored mechanical weapons that have been excavated from ruins all around the world. Lux used to be called the strongest Drag-Knight, but now he’s known as the “undefeated weakest” Drag-Knight because he will absolutely not attack in battle. After his duel with Lisesharte, Lux ends up attending the female-only academy that trains royals to be Drag-Knights.Read More
First thing’s first; merry Christmas everyone. I hope you’re all healthy and will have a joyous Christmas and a happy and safe new year’s eve. And yes, I am still regretting picking Shomin Sample at this point.
It has become painfully predictable. Yes, there are still some funny and interesting scenes (like when the protagonist was in a pinch and his face looked like he was getting shot out of a canon) but that is all there is to it. The story has become so vague that it’s hard to follow. It’s almost as though the episodes are being aired in the wrong order.
But hey, the protagonist went over there, as everyone already knew he would, and pretty much proposed to marry that girl instead. This might lead to an interesting ending… Oh that’s right. It won’t. This episode was the ending, which makes things even weirder. Nothing has been concluded. It ended just like it started; with a lot of question marks. What a disappointing show.Read More
I never thought I’d say this about Shomin Sample ever again, but this episode was actually pretty promising. Shomin Sample had gotten so dull lately that I had almost given up on it. I certainly didn’t expect this episode.
We all know that they are basically creating a strange harem here. All the girls are pretty might fighting over the protagonist and he, being a complete idiot, doesn’t realize any of it (how cliché). That’s all fine. This has been going on for weeks and not a lot has change since. They all just hang around and try to learn more about the common world.
Now Reiko’s mother shows up with her brother to take her back home to help her get married off to another wealthy family. This might be the kick in the balls that’s necessary to make things interesting again. What will our protagonist do? Oh who am I kidding? We all know they’re all going after her in order to try and convince Reiko’s mother to let her daughter make her own life’s choices. And they will obviously succeed…Read More
Shomin Sample has really let me down. I thought that the story, although a little ridiculous, was pretty interesting and showed a lot of promise, but now I feel as though I wouldn’t mind if it ended next week. That’s when you know you’ve lost interest.
The story is just too weak. They are mixing it all up and they never actually finish any of the things they start. I mean, when exactly are we going to learn more about that head maid? I don’t mind being given a toughrough look of her panties. In fact, I, as a pervert, actually appreciate it. But I do want some answers at some point.
Let us be honest; was it really needed to spend almost twenty minutes on the girls’ attempt to make the protagonist stay, even though he wasn’t even leaving to begin with? I feel as though that could’ve been wrapped up within five minutes to make time for more interesting and perhaps more important things. Or at least make it interesting by stopping with all that gay stuff and make the girls use their sexappeal or something.Read More
Fantastic episode! Truly a great episode that all other future episodes need to use an example. It was so freakishly amusing that I didn’t even question the ridiculousness of the story for even a second. Not even when a small army of maids appeared out of nowhere.
The episode started out normally (for as normally as a Shomin Sample episode can possibly start). The girls wanted to know about the commoners and their fixation with maids. Little did they know that the image the commoners have of maids is completely different from actual maids. It’s like a fantasy where the commoner’s maid tries her best to find that balance between cute and weird. I’ll admittedly say that I have no idea what the point of that was. I mean, yeah, the girls were doing it because they wanted to get closer to that idiot, but the general idea was just weird.
Imagine my surprise when suddenly the spotlight shined on Hakua. I don’t think we’ve ever really had an episode with her in the spotlight. At least not since the episode where we first met her. That’s why I absolutely loved this episode. The funniest, cutest and most interesting character of this show got some major screen time this week.
We learned a little about what Hakua does with her time and we learned that she does not really like the head maid. I think it’s about time we learn more about that maid and why she’s so interested in that idiot protagonist. I’ll endure any amount of ridicule as long as I get my weekly dose of Hakua.Read More
